Rubber band card

I’m always trying to find out how to make CAS cards which have a maximum of technique concentrated in a small area. I’m in admiration of those who succeed to make clean and simple cards but are spectacular at the same time. One place I know I can find CAS cards with mixed media techniques is over at the CAS Mix up challenge blog. I always learn something new and today’s card is no exception. Who knew you could make a card with rubber bands! And its so simple too.

There are a few videos over on their blog to show you how to do it, but essentially the idea is to wrap one or more rubber bands around your ink bloc or a roller like I used here, tap/roll it on your ink pad and then tap/roll it on your card stock. I used a soft roller instead of a hard roller, so I also got ink transferred from the spongy areas of my roller instead of just the lines from the rubber bands.

I think they look a little like seaweed growing in the sea don’t you think? The different thickness of the lines come from the different rubber bands I used and also because I twisted them on my roller. I used distress oxide inks – Twisted citron first, then picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon. The die cut comes from Simon Says Stamp called Flowing Vine Collage and the sentiment comes from Technique Tuesday.

Well I hope you enjoyed today’s card and let me know if you tried the technique yourself, I would love to come visit. Have a great day!
